Earth and Planetary Sciences - Climatology
The rise in the aggregate temperature of the climate system of the earth is known as global warming. It primarily focuses on the study of human-caused increase in the temperature of the surface globally. The major cause of global warming is the emission of gases like methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide. These are also called greenhouse gases. Some of the effects of this field are regional changes in precipitation, ocean acidification, rising sea levels, reducing crop yields, wildfires, droughts and extreme weather conditions like heat waves. The major mitigation strategy that is being focused on globally to curb this effect is the reduction in emission of the greenhouse gases. This can be done by switching to low-carbon energy. This book provides comprehensive insights into the field of global warming. While understanding the long-term perspectives of the topics, the book makes an effort in highlighting their impact as a modern tool for the growth of the discipline. Those in search of information to further their knowledge will be greatly assisted by this book.
